Start Swimming

Created by James Fritz — thirdwall.com | Produced by TWA | Origin: Ottawa, ON

“What you doing?…Standing on the grass…What does the sign say?…Keep off the grass…” and so START SWIMMING begins. In a room: 11 people with nothing to go on other than the urges they feel and the need to fight to move ahead, to survive. Is it worth taking risks when a misstep can destroy all they’ve worked for? How do they fight unseen powers attempting to control…and when the rules keep changing? With Pavlovian consequences and Orwellian overtones, this play continues TWA’s tradition of presenting hard-hitting contemporary theatre by young artists. From the makers of FUGEE. WARNING: mature language.
